Odoo ERP Comparison Whitepaper
Microsoft Dynamics, NetSuite, & Odoo
Introducing ERP offers available today
In the last 15 years, new technologies have pushed enterprises both large and small to rethink their process management with respect to the new dynamics created by the changing business landscape. Implementing an ERP is a step many businesses are taking to help organize and optimize the way they do business.
There are many business software offerings currently available on the market, however most are focused solely on the needs of large enterprises. This document aims to give you a good idea of the features offered by the main ERP solutions for SME’s, with an emphasis on cloud-based solutions. A cloud-hosted ERP solution offers a number of advantages over a traditional ERP that is installed locally, many of which are especially relevant to small businesses. A cloud-based ERP is often more flexible and able to adapt to a growing and changing business. Most of the time, startup and maintenance costs are much lower as well because they are included in the license fee.
In order to offer a fair comparison, we have compiled a table of the most important features into ten categories: Sales, Customer Relationship Management, Accounting & Finance, Marketing, Warehouse Management, Manufacturing, Purchasing, Services & Projects, Human Resources and Usability & Productivity.
These categories encompass almost everything an SME might need to manage, develop, and evolve its business operations. The three products analyzed have extra third party apps, developed by partners. Microsoft Dynamics NAV, NetSuite and Odoo all have a public app store. As these modules usually come at an additional cost (licence fees and / or implementation service), we only reported features that are in the standard package within our analysis. We have also included a comprehensive list of the pricing conditions to better weigh the costs / benefits for each solution.
We will finalize this document with some observations on market trends and customer satisfaction as well as provide input on a more global solution for SME’s.
Odoo is an open source software that is available in three versions, two of which are local while the other is hosted in the cloud. More than 14,300 apps are available thanks to the multiple developments made by Odoo S.A. and its community.
